Remember When? Regular visitors to this site will recall that back in April there was a Pink Floyd conference at Princeton University where the world premiere of the 5.1 mix of Roger Waters’ landmark 1992 release Amused To Death, had it's debut. At that time we featured a fantastic review from our resident Audiophile Julie Skaggs. Now the organisers have updated the Conference Site with video clips of talks and live music from the conference, as well as pictures and press reviews. Pay Them A Visit
 
Roger Performs At Charity Event Roger Waters performed a one off show for the 2014 Perfect Earth Project Family Picnic And Concert at Cindy Sherman's farmhouse on August 30 in East Hampton, New York. G.E.Smith (From Roger's 'Wall' band) also played alongside Roger. The set list is not known at this time but it's understood that one NEW song was played. As some of the tickets were going for a cool $10,000 each we couldn't afford to send anybody along, but if we do find out what the full set list was we will certainly pass on the news.

The Endless River - Pressing On! Acoustic Sounds have received a very special delivery. Just arrived are the lacquers cut for 'The Endless River' the first new Pink Floyd album in 20 years. Four sides have just arrived at Quality Record Pressings, straight from Doug Sax and crew at The Mastering Lab northwest of Los Angeles. Acoustic Sounds say "We're ecstatic that QRP was chosen to press 'The Endless River' on vinyl and proud that our recent pressing of 'The Division Bell' was so highly received. When we say we press the world's finest-sounding LP's, we mean it". Click on the thumbnails below to temp your taste buds. Before you ask, it's understood that this is not a double album, rather the 4 sides equates to a double LP which is why it needs 4 sides, for room and sound quality. Our thanks go to Ron Toon for the heads up and to Acoustic Sounds for the pictures.
 
AT LAST! Sorry to have kept our regulars hanging on for a few days but we have managed to sort out the wheat from the chaff and can now tell you the following: There is going to be a screening of Roger Waters The Wall at the World Premiere on 6 September at the Toronto International Film Festival. Ticket Link The film (to be shown on both the 6th at the Elgin & the 7th at the Ryerson) is a documentary about The Wall Tour 2010 - 2013 and Its synopsis promises an "exhilaratingly visceral experience" of rock showmanship. It's understood that Roger will be in attendance at both screenings and there will be Q&A sessions. As to The Wall Tour DVD our best information at this stage is it won't be out until 2015 at the earliest. (If ever!) UPDATE There is to be a third screening of the movie on 14th September at the Scotiabank Theatre. It's doubtful Roger will be at this one. IMDB Link
 
Pink Floyd Engineer Andy Jackson's New Album Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson will release his fourth album Signal To Noise on November 3 via Esoteric Antenna. He was already an established studio veteran when he joined forces with James Guthrie to work on the movie version of The Wall. His connection continues to this day as he's co-producing upcoming Pink Floyd record The Endless River. Andy's label describe Signal To Noise as "a fine modern progressive work, drawing on his exemplary career." He says: "The album reflects on the sorting of what's important in life from the humdrum of everyday existence – and it's an analogy for the process of the creation of the album itself." Signal To Noise follows his previous releases On The Surface, Obvious and Mythical Burrowing Animals. It will appear as a standard CD plus limited-edition 2CD digipak including a 5.1 Surround mix. We will have ordering info for you when it becomes available.
 
Pink Floyd Exhibition Postponed The Pink Floyd Exhibition that was scheduled to open on September 19 in Milan has been postponed. Ticket sales are currently suspended after the organisers realised they wouldn't be able to make the start date. A revised opening date is yet to be announced. A statement on behalf of organisers said: "Evolve Devolve, the Italian promoters of the Exhibition, have announced that the exhibition, has had to be postponed due to production delays. Building the complex exhibition to the required specification has made it impossible to make the opening date." Ticket-holders can exchange them for an alternative date once these are finalised or they can seek a refund. We will of course keep you informed once the new date is announced.

Amused To Death - LP & SACD Delayed Again Here we go again! (I guess we are all getting used to delays) The ATD LP & SACD that we told you about last year, and saw it's debut at the Princeton University Pink Floyd Conference on 12 April (Read REVIEW here) has been delayed once again. We suspect that this may be due to Sony/Legacy's involvement in the project and are now not expecting to see this release until the first quarter of next year! The good news is that you can still pre-order this release from Amazon USA or Amazon Canada who are offering a pre-order price guarantee.
